“Fabulous!”
Reviewed February 9, 2012 for a stay in October 2011

FABULOUS 2-bedroom apartment, location and owner (Mario)!
I don’t know where to start, Mario and his apartment were wonderful!!!! Mario was always professional and trusting in addition responding to email questions quickly, even when he was on holiday. Mario personally met us at the train and provided a tour of his apartment, shared restaurant locations etc. His apartment is beautiful, views from all of the windows and you can hear the bells from the church. Apt. is completely renovated with a modern kitchen and bathroom, yet the other rooms still have the period look and feel. Easy walk from the train and just a block from the Duomo. GREAT experience! Thank you Mario, we had a Great time!

“Perfect Florentine home”
Reviewed February 1, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

Everything about Corilla Olimpica's house is lovely. Perfect location, beautifully decorated apartment in renaissance style, comfy beds and great views. We particularly liked the cosy kitchen overlooking San Lorenzo, eating wonderful pasta bought in the Central Market nearby and enjoying a glass of wine. To make things even better the owner is so helpful and thoughtful and the apartment is full of books on Florence and art. All the sights are within walking distance and coming back at the end of the day we really felt we had found a fabulous Florentine home. Can't wait to return !

“holiday perfection”
Reviewed December 28, 2011 for a stay in October 2011

Spending a week in Mario's beatifully restored apartment made our stay in Florence a total joy. We loved the very Italian-ness of it all, so comfortable and with everything we needed. The proximity to all the main sights in Florence, as well as a supermarket, made this the highlight of our trip. Mario is a justifiably proud host who has gone to great lengths to ensure his guests have a wonderful stay. Thanks so much ,Mario.

“Renaissance”
Reviewed October 18, 2011 for a stay in October 2011

I could not believe my luck by renting this property..It was as advertised and more..the view outside the windows had me in awe. The location is perfect, very close to the Duomo, You are surrounded by Renaissance art and architecture and monuments. inside the apt and right out your door..I didn't get the privilege to meet Mario personally ( due to the passing of his mother) However he sent Alicia and Lucio to meets us, who were very welcoming and helpful..The apt was fully equipped and comfortable to meet all our needs..It even provided bikes for our use with a tire pump if needed..( we didn't need) because we walked everywhere as everything was very near by..Though I didn't meet Mario, our correspondence have always been professional and trusting..I would recommend this place as a choice to stay . You will feel the heart of what Florence is. My favorite place during our European trip.

I have stayed in Florence multiple times and this experience was by far the most delightful because of the living space. Living in Corilia's space, I was immersed in the history of Florence. The landlord is as charming as the apartment, a true renaissance man! You will be thrilled with your decision to rent this apartment as the center of your time in Florence.

“Fabulous central location with 18th century period feel”
Reviewed August 12, 2011 for a stay in June 2011
1
person found this review helpful

My family and I wanted to pass on how much we enjoyed the Corilla Olimpica House/
apartment in Florence.

It is beautiful! The space is comfortable, quiet, and amazing. Living
in the space really gives a feel for an older period in time. The furnishings have the feel of the period of Corilla. The walls and
ceilings are painted so it really looks like a chair rail and cove
ceilings. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped. We
had breakfast every day at home, which saved us money and made for good
family time. We made dinner for a family friend that has been
traveling for a long while, and really appreciated the home cooked
meal. The dining room is so classy, it was a great way to entertain.
It was a great place to hang out together for some relax time during our adventures.

The location is perfect. Being able to walk to the market was a treat.
The selections were great. Being around the corner from the Duomo,
with a view of the Medici Chapel out the kitchen/living room is
unbelievable. The street side is lively, when you close the windows on
that side, the quiet of the back side, along with the lighted view of
the Medici dome is just unbelievable.

There were plenty of supplies for us as well, so other than a couple of minor
things we had what we needed.

To top it off, the landlord is a welcoming, wonderful, gracious gentleman.
I felt like I was talking to an old friend more than taking part in a
business transaction.

you will enjoy your stay here!
